Explore Your Own Ideas

We actively seek diversity in thinking and perspectives and invite talent from across the UW Madison campus to explore their own ideas, or join a team around an existing concept.

We offer an open incubator program for student entrepreneurs with early-stage ideas. Our neutral space allows for student entrepreneurs to develop their ideas, and potentially receive mentorship from successful, local entrepreneurs. Our semester-long sprint format program offers a fast-paced, high energy experience for students who participate.

We offer Co-Innovation Lab opportunities in the spring and fall. The best way to start is to attend an Info Session to learn more.  

You can also fill out this Request to Participate Form or contact hyperxmadison@gmail.com with questions.


We often have hands-on learning opportunities, internships in our Labs, and projects during the year. Filling out the form gets the process started and we will follow up with you with additional questions. Important note: We can only put you in the consideration set, there is no guarantee of participation.

We have a limited number of opportunities for student entrepreneurs. Students we work with may receive one of the following:

  • A scholarship to participate in our incubator program
  • Option to compete for a cash team award for a Grand Challenge at our end-of-semester event
  • A Certificate of Participation for volunteer internships that build new skills and provide experiential learning
